WARNING: The following contains discussion of child sexual abuse, that may be distressing for some readers.
A public consultation is underway to help design a new referral and information service for victims and survivors of child sexual abuse.
There is a paid opportunity for community members to participate in the public consultation project.
The project is delivered by First Nations Co. in partnership with Impact Co. on behalf of the National Office for Child Safety.
The project is a result of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which recommended that a service be created to assist victims and survivors of child sexual abuse to access help and information.
First Nations Co. wants to get feedback from members of the public to ensure the service meets the community’s diverse needs.
They are seeking:
- people with lived experience of child sexual abuse including victims and survivors, families, carers, and other supporters, and
- identified priority population groups who may not have lived experience of child sexual abuse. These include
- people with disability
- First Nations people
- People from a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) background
If you agree to participate, First Nations Co. will arrange a 1:1 interview (1 hr) or focus group (1.5 hr) over Zoom or in person.
You will be reimbursed $50/hr for your time.
